  1. Another tidbit...Rob Freeman flew the first Puma in Canada...he may have some info...ship was C-GUMP...my buddy George of the jungle was the engineer on that one...he told me they gave him all the books and said you now are a wrench on a Puma.
  2. Hey there carholme...from one ex kenting guy to another...Our buddy Grant flew Kentings twinstar up until they pulled the pin in Canada and went to T-land...with Andy A and the two 412's.
  3. Wasn't any EuroCopters at Klondike when I was there in 1974...Bell and Hillers and a couple of Sikorsky S-58...must have just missed you buddy!
  4. Tony Brown sounds about right...the guy I know is Richard Airlie...pretty sure they both worked for Hughes Heli before going with EuroCopter...Richard then went with Bell and has retired.
  5. I have pics of their ships in Ft Smith...1979...one of the Alouettes was upside down in a swamp...and the Gazelle and I had a close encounter in the smoke over the airport!
  6. Also if there are any guys on here that worked for Heli Voyageur they might have some info...they were running Gazelles back in the 70's.
  7. Did Bob Ough work for Hughes back in the 70's...if so I think I know the other guy.
  8. My buddy Ray Gilstorf worked for AutAir,Spartan and Skyrotors before working for Viking...unfortunately he is now dead...sure he could tell you the whole story...not sure if you are the same guy that I worked with at Midwest on a fire up near Armstrong ....could have been Custom. Ray knew most of the old guys in the business...he came on the scene in 1966. He had lots of stories about Larry Campong...not sure of the spelling.
  9. Sounds like the cop at a highway accident...nothing to see here ...move along.. been the same forever and probably will be forever...when you have been around for awhile you start counting the outfits that you might work for...used to be about two handfulls...10...now...probably down to one hand.
  10. Last one I was at was in Kentucky...snowed there...Orlando is much better...met up with Bruce Loren after his trip to the South Pole!
